7 weeks traveling through Iran: Dizin

One of the great pleasures of visiting Iran during winter is that you get to ski in some amazing world class ski resorts. I was able to visit Dizin ski resort twice on my trip to Iran. The first time was good but the second was pretty much awesome. It had snowed the night before so we got to snowboard on some really nice fresh powder. The drive is about 64 kilometers from Tehran which takes about two hours or less to get to the top. That is if the roads are clear of snow. If not there is also a longer route available which will take you to the resort from the bottom but takes about four hours.

I would try to get up early in the morning and have some breakfast. Usually some Sangak, or Barbari with fresh Lighvan cheese. The easiest way to get to the Bazaar is with metro that is if you want to skip Tehran’s insane traffic! I have to say I loved the metro stations in Tehran. Even Though they were sometimes fully packed, but they were really clean. Things looked pretty much brand new to me, having been on the Bart and Caltrain here in California I was extremely impressed by their metro stations. It would take me about an hour to get there f

Just a few weeks ago I came back from a trip to Iran. I was there for about 7 weeks visiting old friends, family members, and traveling through Iran. During my time there I visited some of Iran’s most extraordinary places and cities meeting many generous and amazing people along the way.
